9—' More Errors and Some
Dishonest Tricks'
R. W. Jepson
Since October 5, R. W. Jepson , Headmaster of Mercers School, Holborn, since 1929, and author of many publications, including How to Think Clearly ', published this year, has been broadcasting a weekly talk in this series. He has spoken about habits of thought, prejudice, ambiguity, propaganda, sweeping statements, and so forth. In his talk today he will discuss false reasoning* prejudiced inferences, and unfair conclusions, and he will give some advice about dealing with opponents whose arguments are sophistical or unsound.
There are two broadcasts in this series still to be given. Next Tuesday listeners are to hear an imaginary conversation devised by Robert H. Thouless , and on December 14 there is to be a summing up by Leonard Woolf.

Mecca and the Arabs
H. St. John Philby
Listeners will welcome H. St. John Philby's contribution to this series, for he is perhaps the greatest of living English travellers and one of the best Arabic scholars. He was in charge of the British Political Mission to Central Arabia in 1917 and 1918 ; he crossed the Arabian Peninsula from Uqair to Jidda, and carried out exploration in South Central Arabia, being the first European to visit the Southern Provinces of Najd. From 1930 to 1932 he carried out further exploration of the Arabian Peninsula, including the crossing of the Rub' al Khali desert. He made a nine months' journey last year across the land of Sheba, much of it absolutely virgin soil. The author of ' The Heart of Arabia ' is writing a book on this his most recent exploration, under the title of ' Sheba's Queens '.
